Anthony Davis leaves preseason game with sprained thumb

The good news, however, is that according to a report from The Athletic's Shams Charania, the Lakers don't believe Davis suffered any ligament damage.

Davis was injured in the first quarter of the Lakers' 91-77 loss to the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday at Shenzhen in the finale of the NBA China Games series.

The MRI Sunday will make things more conclusive, and the Lakers will - and should - be cautious with Davis and his health.

The Lakers dropped both of their games to the Nets in China. With treatment and a wrap on his hand Davis likely could play opening night - in 10 days against the Clippers - or at worst not long after that. LA traded for Davis at least in part because injuries to Warriors star Klay Thompson (torn ACL) and departed Kevin Durant (ruptured Achilles) seemingly opened a window of contention in the Western Conference. He finished the game with six points on 2-for-7 shooting to go along with three rebounds, two blocks and one steal in 12 minutes of action.

The Lakers were crippled by injuries last season and missed the playoffs entirely as a result.
